4 stars Eternity by Anathema is where I would say the band would start to become the kind of band that they turned out to be on their later albums. The death/doom metal the band played on their first two albums is gone but the Gothic metal is still very present. Eternity is not as progressive or experimental as their later albums but it does still hold up as a great release. The song Angelica is a beautiful and melancholic song that serves as a great song to kick off the album as it really showcases what the entire album is about. The rest of the album is great, full of melancholic and romantic Gothic beauty that can only be described by listening to the music for yourself. Just because Anathema's earlier material isn't progressive or experimental like their later releases does not mean that they aren't good, as they are great romantic Gothic metal albums, with this one probably being their best early album.
